IX ASA Connecticut Cup

The 9th annual Connecticut Cup became the occasion to welcome old and new friends at the Wallingford club house. Andrea Gasparini returned just a month after the ASA Open to him dedicated; and the Turkish gentleman from New York, Yusuf Yazici came accompanied by his long time friend Burak Tansag of New Jersey. Yusuf claimed his first title as he won the consolation trophy, the Nutmeg Cup; while Burak played six quality games and left with renewed enthusiasm for the game he enjoyed as a child. The Turkish duo is already planning the formation of a NY/NJ club: watch this space for their web site's announcement. The tournament was won by Massimo Conturso (in the photo with the other finalist, Gasparini) after a thrilling final. [photos & scores]
